Description

This dataset includes air quality data collected from field studies in refugee and displacement camps in ten locations within Peru, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Jordan, Turkey and Bangladesh. These include samples of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Particulate Matter (PM), and CO2.

The data Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) sampled over 25 minutes using Tenax A tubes, Particulate Matter (PM) sampled over 30 minutes using TSI DustTrack monitor, CO2 spot measurements in Jordan and Ethiopia only using Extech CO2 meter (model CO250), and 24hrs CO2 monitoring in two shelters in Djibouti unsing TinyTag (model TGE-0011).

Results revealed very harmful levels of pollutants that are often linked to excess mortality - with total VOC concentrations as high as 102400μg·m^-3 and PM over 3000μg·m^-3.
